Do Not "Fear" a Strong Registrar
Hurley, Chuck
College and University, v85 n2 p51-52 Fall 2009
Fear is an interesting word. Especially, when contemplating the contemporary collegiate registrar. The registrar profession seemed to diverge over the last decade. There appears now to be two categories. One is a benevolent person who honors traditional registrar standards, yet does little to grow the profession. The second is an ambassador of data. The fear of information technology is a problem for the registrar profession. The author of this article argues that there is a solution, one that is the path taken by many successful registrars. The path is to become an ambassador of data. One who collaboratively brings forward the fruit of student-faculty data thanks to a combined knowledge of records and information technology. These are people of strength who possess a comprehensive view of what it means to be a registrar. Registrars need to look at the profession on a macro level.
